It seems that every couple of years, there has to be a movie where mankind is decimated or is about to be decimated by extra-terrestrial beings. To me, how they portray our destruction is the real meat of these movies, and Skyline aims to please. I’ll just say this…vacuum cleaner.
The teaser trailer (for those of you with no youtube access) portrays Dan Rather describing on a news program what Stephen Hawking said about us getting a visit from the ETs. In so many words, “be careful about contacting aliens, they might not be so nice to us.”
At the end of the teaser is one of the most wicked scenes of CG I’ve seen implemented in a movie like this, they’re not out to just wipe us out…they use a gigantic vacuum to suck up thousands and thousands of humans into each ship, but for what purpose?!?
I’m gonna go build myself a home in a cave somewhere now if you’ll excuse me.
I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
